  abstract =     "This paper presents a brief overview of music
                 evolution- western and non-western music- from its
                 genesis to serialism and the Darmstadt school. Some
                 mathematical aspects of music are then presented and
                 confronted with music as a form of art. Some questions
                 follow: are these two (very) distinct aspects
                 compatible? Can computers be of real help in automatic
                 composition? Evolutionary Algorithms (EAs), Genetic
                 Algorithms (GAs), Genetic Programming (GP), Particle
                 Swarm Optimisation (PSO) and Ant Colony Optimisation
                 (ACO), are then introduced and some results of GAs and
                 GPs application to music generation are analysed.
                 Variable fitness functions and PSO application seems a
                 promising way to explore. However, what output should
                 be envisaged? Should we expect that computer music
                 sounds as human music, or should we look for a totally
                 different way to explore and listen? How far can go
                 computer creativity and in what direction? 1. A Brief
                 History of the Western Music What is music? Citing
                 Edgar Varese [19], music is organised sound. A well
                 known definition from the late 19th century states that
                 music is the artful or pleasing organisation of sound
                 and silence. However, the way sounds are organized has
                 dramatically changed over the years and among different
                 cultures. In fact, music is found in every culture and
                 even in the most primitive and isolated societies.
                 Perhaps invented in Africa at least 50.000 years ago,
                 music spread all over the world giving rise to
                 completely different forms of expression ranging 2 from
                 primitive tribal songs to sophisticated concerts, from
                 Gregorian chant to serialism, also including Indian
                 ragas, (Chinese) pentatonic scale based music,",
